Fear to Weaken Western Front.
It was stated authoritatively, how
ever, that none of the plans consid
ered had met the objection fthe
United States that they Involved a
weakening of the Western front in
Besides this objection, there has
been a reluctance on the part of the
Administration to depart from its pol

it was admitted that 'an exception
might be justified in the case of Si

It is understood that an agreement

the Russians economically to rehabil
itate themselves wa sabout as far as
the negotiations between the Allies
and the Washington authorities had
progressed when news of the rapid
Czecho-Slovak campaign in Siberia
demonstrated the necessity for revi
sion of any plans of a military cam
paign in that country.
It was said that the developments
were so sudden and unexpected that
it was not now possible to decide just
how and when military aid should be.
Economic Aid Goes Forward.
There is no intention, however, of
abandoning the plan for the introduc
tion into Siberia of supplies from
America needed by the people of that
country, and the personnel of the com
mission to take charge of this work is
now being selected.
Recognizing the great value of the
work being done by the Czechoslo
vaks in counteracting German activi
ties' in Siberia, without entering into
the political quarrels of the Siberians,
the Allied powers will give the. legions
sympathetic and material support, if
need be, as they hold this would be en

neutrality in view of the fact that the
Czecho-Slovaks are their Allies, and
are pledged to refrain from asserting
control over the country through

Prisoner's Remark Not Exactly Com
plimentary to the Lawyers In
the Courtroom.
The conversation in the lobby of
a Washington hotel turned to the bud
ding lawyer when this little anecdote
was smilingly related by Representa
tive Edward E. Brown of Wisconsin:
Recently a man was arrested on a
minor charge, and on the appointed
day was haled into court for trial.
"Just a moment," remarked the
judge, interrupting the preliminary
proceedings. "Has the prisoner at the
bar no counsel?"
"No, sir," spoke Up the prisoner. "1
couldn't afford to employ a lawyer."
"In that event the court will appoint
counsel for you," returted the Judge,
glancing at a group of budding law
yers who were seated In the court
room. "There are Mr. Jones, Mr.
Smith, Mr. Green and Mr. Brown, and
also another fellow out in the corridor.
Which do you prefer?"
"If It's all the same to you, judge,"
was the startling rejoinder of the pris
oner, "I will take the fellow that's out

A Great Responsibility.
"THE responsibility attached to the preparing of a remedy for infants and children
1 is undoubtedly greater than that imposed upon the manufacturer of remedies
for adults whose system is sufficiently strong to counteract, for a time at least, any
injurious drug. It is well to observe that Castoria is prepared today, as it has been
for the past 40 years, under the personal supervision ef Mr. Ohas. H. Fletcher.
What have makers of imitations and substitutes at stake What are their
responsibffities? To whom are they answerable? They spring up today, scatter
their nefarious wares broadcast, and disappear tomorrow.
Could each mother see the painstaking care with which the prescription for
Eetcherts Castoria is prepared: could they read the innumerable testimonials from
grateful mothers, they would neverlistento the subtle pleadings and false arguments
of those who would offer an imitation of, or substitute for the tried and true
Fletcher's Castoria.

Applicants lor Insurance Often
An examining physician for one of the
prominent life insurance companies, in an
interview of the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that_ one reason why
so many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so com
mon to the American people, and the large
majority of those whose applications are
declined do not even suspect that they
have the disease.
Judging from reports from druggists
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public, there is one preparation that
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is*
soon realized. It stands the highest for
its remarkable record of success.
We find that Swamp-Root is strictly
an herbal compound and we would ad
vise our readers who feelJn need of sueh a
remedy to give it a trial. It is on sale
at all drug stores ia bottles of two sizes,
medium and large.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation send tea cents to Dr.

ample bottle. When writing be sure and
